Scottish band Deacon Blue certainly have had their ups and downs from being one of the biggest UK bands in the late 80’s/early 90’s to losing a founding member to cancer in 2004 and ultimately experiencing a whirlwind series of splits and reunions. Thankfully the Glaswegian outfit are very much alive and kicking in 2013 with the release of their first Christmas single called ‘You'll Know It's Christmas’. With leadman Ricky Ross showing no signs of losing that vocal thrust this could well have been something from the band’s golden period circa ‘Raintown’. The release contains 3 songs in total, with ‘You'll Know It's Christmas’, ‘Twelve Nights’ and ‘Starstruck’ all originals written for the occasion. ‘You'll Know It's Christmas’ gets its official release on December 15th, 2013.
